Radiation Protection Materials for Lead Aprons

Deutsch Medical offer three different radiation protection materials that assure maximum protection against harmful radiation exposure in hazardous work environments. Each protection material has its own particular benefits in terms of radiation protection, functionality, application and cost. All three materials conform with all major global standards AS/ NZS 4543.3:2000 (Australia/ NZ), IEC 61331-3:2014 (International), ASTM F2547 (USA) and DIN 6867-2 (Germany), independently tested and certified against a full range of energy levels; 60 to 150 kVp.

The area density (weight information) of the radiation protection materials is measured in grams per square metre which is the most accurate way of defining weight and comparing it to other brands. We believe that the weight of the radiation protection material is just as important as the protection level when choosing the right lead apron, and that the weight should be verified by an independent body. For this reason, our manufacturer has requested that the independent test laboratory publishes the area density of their supplied sample on the Test Report provided. This is your guarantee that radiation protective products you buy from Deutsch Medical are as stated on the product label.

Lead

Lead Material
RECOMMENDED FOR:
  • Short procedures
  • Medical professionals within radiology, dental, veterinary and nuclear medicine
Lead (L) is specifically suitable for radiation protection because of its high absorption and attenuation of x-ray photons. Lead is often considered the budget choice. However, lead is a heavy option and can cause occupational health issues (1) when worn for a long time. Therefore, Lead is only an ideal protection when in use for shorter periods of time.
Independently tested and certified against a full range of energy levels; 60 to 150 kVp by “Institut für Strahlenschutz und Dosimetrie” Austria.
  • IEC 61331.1-2014 Compliant
  • IEC 61331.3-2014 Compliant
Area Density in g/m2
0.25mm Pb: 3359
0.35mm Pb: 4648
0.50mm Pb: 6747

Light Lead Plus

Light Weight Lead & Lead Composite Material
RECOMMENDED FOR:
  • Short to medium procedures
  • Medical Personnel within radiology and surgical procedures

Light Lead Plus (LLP) consists of lead combined with antimony. This material is lighter than “lead-only” apparel (up to 285 Grams per square metre).

Light Lead Plus is considered the economical choice for a garment which provides optimum radiation protection and is comfortable to wear when in use for short and medium periods of time.

Independently tested and certified against a full range of energy levels; 60 to 110 kVp by “Institut für Strahlenschutz und Dosimetrie” Austria.
  • IEC 61331.1-2014 Compliant
  • IEC 61331.3-2014 Compliant
Area Density in g/m2
0.25mm Pb: 3208
0.35mm Pb 4508
0.50mm Pb: 6462

Supreme Lead Free

Light Weight Lead Free Material
RECOMMENDED FOR:
  • Long procedures
  • Medical Personnel within Cardiac Catheter Labs, Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) Labs; Interventional Radiology, Urology and Cardiology.

Supreme Lead Free (SLF) is a revolutionary protective material which consists of two fundamental materials: Bismuth and Antimony, which protect throughout the full voltage spectrum required as per the most recent regulatory requirements. While antimony will shield the transmission of scatter radiation between 60-110 kVp, Bismuth will block the transmission of lower level scatter or fluorescent radiation between 50-90 kVp.

Supreme Lead-Free is the lightest material on the market, while offering optimum protection when considering current testing standards(2). Combined with the ergonomic design of our apparel, you will be wearing the most protective and comfortable safety apron even during long procedures.

Independently tested and certified against a full range of energy levels; 60 to 110 kVp by “Institut für Strahlenschutz und Dosimetrie” Austria.
  • IEC 61331.1-2014 Compliant
  • IEC 61331.3-2014 Compliant
Area Density in g/m2
0.25mm Pb: 2762
0.35mm Pb 3785
0.50mm Pb: 5267

Fabric Materials and Colour Options

Deutsch Medical offers three different fabric materials: Flex-DC and Easy-Clean Spangly and Standard Nylon. All lead aprons come with a soft nylon lining for additional comfort.

Flex-DC: Keeping you comfortable and flexible in your movements

The Flex-DC fabric is a specifically formulated material unique to our manufacturer AmRay, which gives the wearer a lightweight flexible fabric that is hard-wearing and durable. Its flexible proprieties afford the wearer complete comfort and ease of movement, avoiding unwelcome bulging from bending, sitting or leaning. A polyurethane coating provides an easy-clean surface to avoid staining and provides high standards of hygiene.



Easy-Clean ‘Spangly’: Making it easier to keep your apron clean.

In addition to the Flex-DC features, the Spangly fabric contains an additional coating to create an easy-clean surface resistant to staining.



Standard Nylon

Time-Saving Inventory Management for Radiation Protection

Making it easy to manage your personal radiation protection equipment.

We offer all customers access to A-Track, a cloud-based software which allows users to easily manage, track and document the inspection of radiation protection garments.

Saving you time and effort

From the moment you log in to A-Track, you can clearly see what garments require inspection and when. Once a lead garment is added to the system, an intelligent tracking device will reduce the amount of information you are required to enter by prepopulating user input, saving you time and effort.

Keeping you compliant and ensuring safety regulations are met.

With an integrated iOS and Android application, you can retrieve the full garment history by scanning the QR code on our A-Track label that is fitted to any of our lead aprons. After scanning you can easily see the lead garment’s full details, including a full history of past, current and future inspections. If you are a smart phone user you can still input the unique code into any web browser and retrieve results via the cloud-based A-Track software.

Delivering value to you

This service is included with every lead apron purchase. No capital investment in hardware is required.

Bespoke Service - Create Your Lead Apron

Deutsch Medical was established, because we recognise that one-size doesn’t fit all and doesn’t provide the personal protection you may require for your profession. Our response was to develop a user-friendly approach to radiation protection, providing standard and customised solutions to healthcare professionals and their patients. That’s why we offer a bespoke service which ensures that you get the precise fit you need to be fully protected, with the lead apron design that you prefer. This delivers the level of protection you need and a more comfortable fit for daily wear.

Custom Options

We offer embroidery (monograms, logo on pocket) thyroid collar clipped on, with different closure types (Velcro or magnets).
